Broncos’ John Elway responds to lawsuit, issues formal statement in wake of Brian Flores’ allegations

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

In a lawsuit filed this week against the NFL and three teams – including the Broncos – for what Flores alleges were attempts to undermine the integrity of the Rooney Rule, Flores also described his 2019 interview with Denver for its head coaching vacancy, one he claims Elway showed up late to and looked “Disheveled” from an apparent night of drinking.

“I’ve had nine interviews with NFL clubs,” Flores said, doubling down on his claims to ESPN’s “Get Up”. “There was one interview where everyone was late, and that wasn’t me that was late, that was the interviewers who were late, and that was with the Broncos. I think there was a reason why they were late. I think they had been out the night before. When you sit at a table with five people who are interviewing you, you can tell who is asking questions, who is into the interview, who is not necessarily in the right state in that moment.

“But even then, I put my best foot forward and showed why I was a good candidate for that job. Along with the rest of our group, I was prepared, ready and fully engaged during the entire interview as Brian shared his experience and vision for our team.

“For Brian to make an assumption about my appearance and state of mind early that morning was subjective, hurtful and just plain wrong. If I appeared”Disheveled”, as he claimed, it was because we had flown in during the middle of the night – immediately following another interview in Denver – and were going on a few hours of sleep to meet the only window provided to us.
